I prefer New Orleans.

Musicians on every street block is my style of partying and enjoyment. Great local food helps too.

I would put LA far above NYC in terms of parties. Could 2014 LA beat late 80's/early 90's NYC's scene? eff no. But does 2014 LA absolutely crush 2014 NYC? God yes. NYC fell off during Guliani's tenure. Part of it was the amped up security post-9/11, but a lot of it was Guliani throwing the baby out with the bathwater in his effort to cleanup the city. I would 1998 was the year that I noticed clubs and raves turning to crap in New York.

Meanwhile LA is on fire right now. Underground parties every night of the week in warehouses in the Fashion District and Arts District in DTLA, and even on the other side of the river in Boyle Heights. I'm getting older and don't take advantage of the scene here as much as I would have 10 years ago, but I appreciate that its here. No attitudes, good vibes, and clubgoers trying to top each other with the craziest, most creative outfits every night. Its the NYC club kid days all over again.

If you're going to the clubs that shut down at 2am, you're doing it wrong

Actually, I take that back...the daytime pool party scene is pretty dope. Nothing like hearing some funky or deep house at the pool at the Roosevelt in Hollywood or the Standard rooftop downtown. But yeah besides that- warehouse parties all the way. They go until 6 or 7am and never seem to get shut down.

But LA is KING of mansion and house parties - which have NO last call time (except when neighbors call the cops).
In which city exactly does mansion and house parties have a last call time again? Remind me again because I forgot.

I would put philly there for the black and puerto rican people and they're house parties -Shrug- Maybe they're not "people" to some people.

College students party with EDM parties in philly and I dont know bout the boring people that dont dance or dont party, u know.

But since you've judged me as having "horrible taste", lets hear your criteria for good nightlife/party scenes. Please be specific. After all, someone so judgmental must have impeccable taste. Unless said person just likes putting down others without having any reasoning and knowledge to back it up.
Yes because LA is the only city with warehouses and pools with frat boys going woo-hoo yeah!!!
